All right, here’s hoping you all had a fine weekend… and that those of you who celebrate St. Patrick’s Day aren’t feeling too under the weather today.  Nothing else for it but to fire up the old coffee pot, I say.

We’re starting off the new week in high style this morning with an in-depth review of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on Blu-ray!  The film streets tomorrow from Warner Home Video on Blu-ray 3D Combo, Blu-ray Combo and DVD, but of course you certainly already know that if you’re a Lord of the Rings fan.  You’ve probably got your own copy already on the way.  Well let me tell you, you’re in for a treat.  Whatever you think of the film itself, the disc looks and sounds absolutely fantastic.  But more on all that in my review – enjoy!

Meanwhile, there’s not much in the way of news or announcements to report yet this morning (at least as of 12:01 AM Pacific time), so I’ll let you all dive into the Hobbit review for now and if anything important or interesting breaks later today I’ll drop back in here to cover it.  But we do have hot new BD cover art for you to check out this morning for all of Warner’s forthcoming gangster film titles (due on 5/21).  You can pre-order them all now from Amazon by clicking on the cover images...

White Heat (Blu-ray Disc)    Little Caesar (Blu-ray Disc)    The Petrified Forest (Blu-ray Disc)

The Public Enemy (Blu-ray Disc)    Ultimate Gangsters Collection: Classics (Blu-ray Disc)    Ultimate Gangsters Collection: Contemporary (Blu-ray Disc)

Watch for a review of CBS’ new Star Trek: Enterprise – Season One on Blu-ray in the next couple of days (it streets next week, on 3/26).  Plus we’ll have all the usual release news and other business too.

So for now, top of the morning to you all… and stay tuned!
